Something that is only 900 feet in diameter and that far away does not have enough mass (as long as it's made of normal matter) to affect anything here on earth.
Even if it were to pass within only 1,000 miles of our planet, we wouldn't feel anything from it.
Now the Earth would affect it, due to the fact the earth is over 40,000 times more massive in size than that rock.
The scary part is that they just discovered it. Makes you wonder what else is heading this way... at a much closer distance
